svtguy88 I say go for it. ITBs are on my eventual to-do list, but not until I can afford to spend a shit load for a relatively small return.

I still am planning on doing the cams, but I'm waiting until Winter so I can hopefully tear the engine down and get my build going...

It will work, but look at how much money you just spent.
Is it really worth it?

I don't think it is unless you're limited by class rules. Otherwise turbo is going to give much more power.

beatmaniac1 I like that part combination ahah You should post a '' how-to ITB your svt'' post if you accomplish the build I plan to do the same when I finish school, but I'm wondering how to deal with the engine management...

gregor_42 ^^I'm curious as well. All I've ever heard were good things from it.

dirtbiker348 Hey Tom, what is wrong with the top speed manifold just curious? I remember seeing good dyno sheets after it came out

CharlieO ok so all and all which cams can you do to keep it 93 oct and will you see numbers with it? and i understand valve springs and retainers mostly are done also but without doing crazy manifold tb intake is this possible? cause i mean this is mainly our options

1turbofocus No , I do not feel you will gain any TQ/HP and might even loose some the cams offer by going higher then 10.2 compression on 93 octane fuel

I would do the cams , 3 inch Exh , TB , Tune , Custom Intake manifold but not the top speed one

svtguy88 So, keeping in mind that this engine will likely get a full-on build at some point in the future, you'd recommend keeping the compression stock?

Even with pulling some timing to avoid knocking, you don't think the bump in compression combined with cams would be advantageous? I could have swore that I read of people changing to the Zetec head gasket just for the compression increase on otherwise stock engines.
